Arrow Aftermarket FICM?

So I think my FICM is on the way out. I got codes p0611 and circuit low codes for injectors 1 and 7. The voltage is around 45v reading it through a scan tool.
My question is what is the best bang for the buck FICM. If you have first hand experience throw your 2cents in.

At 45 volts you're still "ok" but hands down the bulletproof diesel ficm is the best out there.

That's one I've been eyeing. Tad on the pricey side but you get what you pay for. I'm leaning towards something like accurate diesel because it seems like it'll be a good step up from stock and its half the price of the Bulletproof one. Also if it ends up being injectors I'm gonna go the extra mile and put studs in this thing along with some higher flowing injectors. I'm at 242,000M with OG head gaskets.

I have already had to replace the stock FICM with a rebuilt one, but when I replaced the rebuilt one with a 4 phase BPD FICM it was a night and day difference, especially with cold starts in the dead of winter here in CO.

My BPD 48V FICM will hold 48.5 - 49 volts all day long, hot, cold, cranking, even on weak batteries. Love it!

You might want to check out a couple options on the ficm before you do the Bullet proof. Don't get me wrong the Bullet Proof ficm is the top dog of ficm's. You cant and wont find a better one. But you can have yours rebuilt by ficmrepair.com. They did mine and did a awesome job. You cant find a bad word about this guy. And with his atlas 40 tune the truck just woke up.
The other option is the Dorman ficm on amazon. I was surprised when I saw the price and so far the dorman ficm's are doing just fine.
Once again are they as good as the BPD set up? No If I would of had the extra fun money to go that route when mine decided to give up I would now have the bpd ficm in my truck.
Just wanted to give you a couple options...
